Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"Lyrical" text and "extraordinary, light-filled" paintings celebrate the earth, children and the diversity of the world's ethnic heritages, said PW. Ages 4-up. (Sept.) Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
With her lyrical text and splendid oil paintings, Hamanaka ( The Journey ; Screen of Frogs ) offers a hymn to children everywhere, who are ``all the colors of the earth and sky and sea.'' Extraordinary, light-filled paintings accompany the single curving line of text on each page. A girl whose complexion is described as the ``crackling russets of fallen leaves'' turns a cartwheel in a sparkling autumnal scene. An Asian boy stares into the eyes of a lion, and both subjects are the color of the ``whispering golds of late summer grasses.'' Two bronze-haired boys play at the seashore, their skin the color of ``the tinkling pinks of tiny seashells by the rumbling sea.'' Hamanaka salutes the varieties of ``hair that flows like water'' and ``hair like bouncy baby lambs.'' She shows adults showering children with love that ``comes in cinnamon, walnut, and wheat,'' and ``amber and ivory and ginger and sweet.'' These joyful illustrations amply celebrate the richness and diversity of the world's ethnic heritages. All ages. (Aug.)
Children's Literature - Jan Lieberman
The dazzling diversity of children is celebrated in this poem that uses metaphors of color to describe the beauty of children. "Children come in all the colors of the earth - the roaring browns of bears, and soaring eagles/ The whispering golds of late summer grasses, and crackling russets of fallen leaves..." Beautiful oil paintings of children from various cultures make this a joy to read and share.
Children's Literature - Beverly Kobrin
This joyous book in rhyme celebrates the diversity and oneness of all peoples. In her picture book for all ages, Ms. Hamanaka's lustrous oils illustrate the fact the "Children come in all the colors of the earth...."
School Library Journal
Gr 1-4-A poetic picture book and an exemplary work of art. The simple text describes children's skin tones and hair in terms of natural phenomena (``...the roaring browns of bears''; ``...hair that curls like sleeping cats in snoozy cat colors'') and then describes love for these children with rich colors and flavors (``...love comes in cinnamon, walnut, and wheat...''). Hamanaka's oil paintings are all double-page spreads filled with the colors of earth, sky, and water, and the texture of the artist's canvas shines through. The text is arranged in undulant waves across each painting. This might be paired with Arnold Adoff's Black Is Brown Is Tan (HarperCollins, 1973), for younger readers, or his All the Colors of the Race (Lothrop, 1982), for older students, or read alone in celebration of diversity.-Barbara Chatton, College of Education, University of Wyoming, Laramie
Deborah Abbott
How better to celebrate ethnic diversity than to look to children, the hope of the future? This glorious picture book, with its spare, lyrical text, does just that. Illustrated with oil paintings of youngsters of all ages, the carefully worded text rolls in serpentine swirls across pages on which children "who come in all the colors of the earth" laugh, smile, ponder, join hands, and rejoice in the common pleasure of being young. Upbeat and exuberant, this is a selection to share.

    Simply beautiful

    A good book that describes the many colors of us via those that occur in nature and food. This book covers all races and their colors: red, white, black, brown and yellow plus some pinks too. Nicely done. A celebration of everything that makes us different and the same. One that parents will enjoy reading as well as kids. The illustrations are wonderful. Detailed and distinct they add to the flowing text. A great addition to any library.
